Ryan Young, Jenn Butterworth & Alfi


A co-promotion with Moving on Music

Ryan Young is one of the most exciting fiddle players working today and he returns to The Duncairn in another fine alignment of talent presented in partnership with Moving on Music.  His accolades include an MG Alba Music Award and multiple nominations for the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards.  Aidan O’Rourke (Lau) has described Young’s musicianship as: “Uniquely graceful and expressive playing…a future star of the Scottish fiddle world.”

Jenn Butterworth has performed on a host of award winning and nominated studio albums, including Kinnaris Quintet’s ‘Free One’, which was long-listed for Scottish Album of the Year in 2019. Kinnaris Quintet was also nominated for Folk Band of the Year at the 2018 Scots Trad Music Awards, and the Horizon Award at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards.

Opening the concert will be Appalachian old time and traditional Irish band, Alfi. You might have seen them here before? That fresh young Dublin-based trio with an unusual blend of harp, five-string banjo, low whistle, uilleann pipes and vocals. Also, check out tomorrow’s Creative Collective performance at the Super Sunday where Alfi will be guest curating.
